    I am looking for best print quality. If two prints are of equal quality, the more complex one will win.

    It can consist of as many pieces as you want.

    You can submit as many times per round as you want but you can only win once per round.

    You can have modded printers as long as you post the mods that were used and how they were done...ie no top secret mods...they have to be 'Open'.

    tth is in the lead!

    ENTRY 1: Cute Octo

    Here is a cute octopus I printed on my Two-Up. If I remember correctly, it took a little over an hour and a half to print.

    ENTRY 2: Custom Shotglass

    This is a shotglass I printed that is my own custom design. It transitions from a square base to a circular top, pretty simple but it looks ridiculously good. It took about 2 hours to print.

    note: The white at the bottom of the object is tape..because I accidentally started the print with the head too high and the bottom ended up not being waterproof

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ ~~~~~~~

    I am running the following mods which affect quality of the prints
    X-Gantry mod http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:248059
    Custom extruder http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:296670
    Z-screw top bracket http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:289966

    Both were printed at 0.1mm layer height and 2 shells. The octopus had 10% infill.

    some nice prints and i dont think i have a chance but this is my first almost perfect print, printed on red dragon abs at .3mm layers on a 2up with aluminum extruder. i had problems with the abs sticking to the tape so i printed the base layer with pla and switch to abs, i ended up with a little warping but the heat gun took care of that.

    Here are three prints from my Two-Up. The only modifications I am using are my binder clip Z-wobble reduction and ddegonge888's printed damper feet. They were all printed using natural PLA.

    My first print is Emmett's gear bearing, printed with .127mm layers. http://i.imgur.com/LXZLvUQ.jpg

    My next print is a MakerBot robot, also printed with .127 layers. http://i.imgur.com/ou0KWEC.jpg

    Finally, here is a tiny set of nautilus gears. I took the model from http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:27739 and scaled it down to half the original size.

    Despite the smaller size, it is still fully functional. Here is a video of the gears turning. http://youtu.be/vjjLZzMdTZk

    Contest Entry #2

    I've made a few improvements with my printer. First I built a chamber for my One-Up to help with warping. Second I printed Kezat's Z-coupler which help eliminate almost all ribbing. These are 3 vases I printed as well as a fully functional lock.

    Vase 1:

    Not to get off topic, but what kind of filament are you using Phantom? It looks really nice!
